Hailing Frequencies are Open

One night during the 2012 Boise Sync Cabin, Doug took me out into the fields to point out the stars. I looked up and I’d never seen a night sky as beautiful as that in my whole life. It was the sky that, until the invention of the electric light bulb, was the birthright of every human being on earth. Primal, in other words. Doug pointed out Cygnus (the swan) to me, and also Antares. And those names stuck with me, I always try to find Cygnus in the sky, and I even named my iPhone “Antares”.

After I got back home from Idaho, I wrote an erotic short story outline called The Birth of Antares, who was the bastard son of the Greek tyrant of Corinth and Andromeda - a prostitute in the temple of Aphrodite. He appealed to me because Antares is the antonym of Aries, the god of Mars, and war.

So the October 28 story about the Antares rocket explosion carrying the Cygnus cargo to the International Space Station (ISS or in sync terms, Isis, the Star of the Sea, who was called Aphrodite by the Greeks) was just a bit over the top.


Update 1/11/14:

Antares lies in the Scorpio constellation, which we entered on Oct. 23, directly after Libra. In fact, Antares is known as the “Eye of the Scorpion”. The Scorpion King is a proto-dynastic Egyptian king figure.

This would appear to be important, see Loren Coleman’s post: The Scorpion and the Shining

I found this to be an extremely powerful sync, that the scorpion king’s rocket went up in flames as we entered Scorpio. We note that JFK was assassinated on 11/22, the last day of Scorpio. It was a "pay attention" moment.
Scorpio is the most powerful sign in the zodiac, and it is no wonder Scorpios have a reputation for being mysterious, complex and intense. They are ruled by the planet Pluto, which governs sex, death, transformation, and atomic power. ~Astrology wiki

Hello, Marty McFly.

The symbol of the scorpion is based on Scorpius, a giant scorpion sent by Gaia to kill Orion. ~wikipedia

Why would Gaia need to kill Orion? Because he threatened to kill every beast on earth. As we descend into what is now called the next Great Extinction event, we wonder if Gaia isn’t arming her next scorpion. The hunter becomes the hunted.

The strange thing is that I had another dream the morning of the 28th, the night before the Antares rocket:

I was with some people in a room, I think one was my (deceased) brother - The general atmosphere was that of a late night frat house drinking game. We were playing a “game” where we let these disgusting worm/scorpion things bite and crawl through our skin and partly down our veins, drinking our blood. Then we’d grab them, being careful not to get stung by their dangerous tails, pull them out of our veins, bite their tails off and eat them! That was the tastiest part - the tail, with it’s stinger and venom sac - it was sort of a delicacy.

NOTE: Class Comics, the gay porn comics franchise, introduced a new villain for Sons of the Night this Halloween: Scarab. Talk about the dick of death.

A Horse With No Name

At the Sync Summit in Olympia, Will Morgan’s (A Few Shots to Shaman, 42 minutes) presentation was about horses and how they represent the libido, or phallus, via a sync exploration of Viggo Mortensen films. Of course, my ears perked up. Later on, he told me about Pegasus, the flying horse tamed by Bellerophon. Pegasus was the “bringer of Zeus’ lightning bolts”, and his name means “lightning”.

The Jewish Kabbala’s Tree of Life is said to be animated by a lightning flash, which is sometimes coded as 777.

To bring this all back to 9/11 (as everything must), the World Trade Center, representing the twin columns of the Tree of Life, were struck by American Airlines flight 777, thus bringing down Solomon’s Third Temple. Flight 777 was the “flying horse”, or Pegasus - Lightning!

Horse with no name

A short while later, I noticed a yacht tied up in Point Hudson Marina named Pegasus. I didn’t bother taking a pic of it, because the ladder obscured the name and the sync wasn’t that big of a deal to me… boats are named Pegasus all the time. But yesterday, I noticed that the name was gone! I had to investigate. So I walked down the finger pier to take a snapshot of the no name horse, and the owner walked down the dock behind me so I was able to engage him in conversation about his boat. He said that he’d recently bought it, and was changing the name to Libra. Being a sailor, he pointed to the sky at the constellation Pegasus and said “From here” and then pointing at the opposite direction, “to there!”

But I still recognized him
This was interesting to me because we are currently “in” Libra, and my birthday is also in Libra.

Libra is the seventh astrological sign in the Zodiac. Under the tropical zodiac, Sun transits this area on average between (northern autumnal equinox) September 23 and October 23… The symbol of the scales is based on the Scales of Justice held by Themis, the Greek personification of divine law and custom. She became the inspiration for modern depictions of Lady Justice. ~wikipedia

So this fearsome and magical horse is being renamed “Justice”.
“I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.” ~Thomas Jefferson
For my birthday, I received this crossword puzzle of NYC. You can see the Freedom Tower in downtown Manhattan, the building that replaced the Twin Towers after the Pegasus strike. I suppose it could be called the Fourth Temple of Solomon.

But this is when it gets interesting, sorry for the long intro. I continued to chat with the owner of Pegasus/Libra, and I asked about the distinctive rig, which featured a single, free-standing mast. He told me all about its carbon fiber construction, and when I asked who built it, he said:
“It’s a Freedom”.
That made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Did Bellerophon just let slip his next target?

The Root of All Goodness

The 32nd Port Townsend Kinetic Sculpture Race went on last weekend. This year’s theme was Mythos: Gods and Goddesses, so of course it was syncy as hell. I have pics of Zeus, Aphrodite, Hades, Isis, The Unknown God and the Flying Spaghetti Monster, but for me the best kinetic sculpture was The Almighty Dollar.

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. ~1 Timothy 6:10
The curious thing about the dollar is that its symbol is a snake on a staff, which is also the symbol of Asclepius, the Greek God of medicine.

The myth of Asclepius tells us:
Zeus killed Asclepius with a thunderbolt because he raised Hippolytus from the dead and accepted gold for it. ~ wikipedia
This is fascinating, considering our own medical “industry” is all about the gold, and not so much about the healing, except as a way to get… more gold! That’s just the way it is in the land of the Almighty Dollar.

It is not clear why snakes are sacred to Asclepius and to healing:
In honor of Asclepius, a particular type of non-venomous snake was often used in healing rituals, and these snakes — the Aesculapian Snakes — slithered around freely on the floor in dormitories where the sick and injured slept.
However, in shamanic visions, a snake-like character is often described. I’ve seen them myself.

To many occult researchers, the serpent, and especially the intertwined snakes of the Hermetic staff, represent the double helix of our own DNA. If you subscribe to the idea of consciousness being far greater than mere human synapse firing, but something ingrained into the fabric of the universe itself, then it is not so far-fetched to suppose that our DNA has an encoded intelligence, a “library” of information that would make the Library of Alexandria pale in comparison. And this just might be the source of shamanic healing of which Asclepius and his staff are a symbol.



In the short story "The Two Temples" by Herman Melville, the narrator, hired by a lady as a personal physician, describes his job as "the post of private Æsculapius and knightly companion."

I wonder… if you ritually burn a dollar bill, can you release Asclepius from his curse?


UPDATE: 10/15/14

I read an article in the library about a shortage of snake anti-venom, especially the coral snake, because it was not profitable for pharmaceutical companies to produce it. This syncs fairly hard on the myth of Moses and the brazen serpent.


UPDATE: 10/16/14

Well, that was weird. Mom asked us to burn some old financial records on the beach, since they no longer needed to be kept. We lit a bonfire, and many printed $ snake signs went up in flames this afternoon. There were many medical bills and receipts in the fire, and old bank statements. The conversation around the fire turned to medical issues of friends and family that were on our minds. It became a sort of fire side lament.

So somehow, we acted out the ritual I had described just above, even though I never goaded, suggested or even hinted that any of this should, or even could, occur.
